days early. this opening day line is in iowa city. >> here we go. >> reporter: this one in des moines. iowa's early voting, part of a growing and natural trend. some states allow the early voting, including the battlegrounds, cnn ranks as toss-ups. here in iowa, the early numbers and early turnout is just a big obama head-start. so far, an advantage statewide in requesting early ballots. >> i was wondering if the president will have your support this november. awesome. >> reporter: and when it comes to early in-person voting, there is added emphasis in getting younger voters in early. >> you may know that the early voting starts tomorrow in iowa. so basically for us here at the campaign, every day will be an election day. >> yes, we can. >> reporter: home to the university of iowa, they led the state four years ago when 55% of their ballots were cast early. >> the entire world is watching us. >> reporter: as president of the university democrats? katherine baldy's job is getting her fellow students to vote now. >> fair to say, not the most reliable if you just wait for one day. >> yea
